Just seen this on the BBC website suggesting cyclists should be allowed to use the Olympic Games road lanes.

Not sure about this given that the games lanes are on the right - do the cars overtake you on the right or left?

It doesn't sound viable to me
"TfL said cyclists could not use 95% of the lanes because they were outside lanes which cyclists would not use anyway other than to turn right. However, right turns have been banned on the Games lanes.

It said of the remaining 5% which were nearby lanes, cyclists could not use two thirds of them because the high speed limits made them too dangerous."
